Chef - Andrew Pern, The Star Inn the City
Andrew Pern and his Michelin starred restaurant, The Star Inn at Harome need no introduction. His success has inspired him to bring his style of dining to a wider audience through The Star Inn the City; his stunning riverside restaurant in the heart of York. Here Andrew is ably supported by his head chef, Matt Hunter.
The extensive use of local seasonal produce provided through a network of suppliers Andrew has nurtured over the years reflects not just his 'modern Yorkshire' cooking style but his own roots as a farmer's son from the North York Moors. He says the moors were an idyllic place to live and learn about nature's larder; seafood from the North Sea, lamb, beef and pork reared with pride by neighbours, game shoots alongside the Esk Valley and grouse from the purple-shrouded moors. "Without ever being conscious of it," he says, "the food you were eating was teaching you about the seasons."
The Star Inn the City opened to critical acclaim in October 2013 and since then has built a reputation as THE place in York to wine and dine. The restaurant's design combines the stunning contemporary River Room with the heritage of Lendal Tower. The riverside setting is enhanced by a patio for a pre-dinner drinks or a meal outside when the weather permits.
